Hello,

I've just completed some editing of the text (and in one schematic diagram) concerning Tesla coils in the 'Transformers" chapter of the AC volume, as per a suggestion from a reader. The section is at this location on the "AllAboutCircuits" website:

http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_2/chpt_9/7.html

The changes involve a misconception about the safety of Tesla coils, especially with reference to the "skin effect," and also the basic spark-gap circuit diagram. Given the safety nature of this edit, I recommend immediately updating your site to reflect the changes. The updated text and image may be found in the equivalent location at the iblbio website:

Correction: the proper URL for the source at the iblbiio website is

P.S.
By The way, I've been trying to upload a small graphic image from my computer for use as an "avatar." It appears this option is not functioning yet, so I chose the little hammer guy from the stock page of avatars. Am I doing something wrong, or is the upload facility not working yet?

Hasn't one of the more recent members managed to upload his own picture as an avatar?

PM him and ask him how he did it.

Edit: Actually looking at it, I think he may have uploaded one of the avatars from the base gallery. Sorry :rolleyes:
